Pharmaceuticals, Food, and Chemicals
Bulk solids are involved in over 70% of industrial processes either as the raw material or the final product. Efficient handling and processing of those materials is critical to profitable manufacture of pharmaceutical drugs, food and other products. EDEM simulates and analyzes the behavior of powders, tablets, capsules, granules, aggregates, etc. It is used to simulate a range of processes including mixing, coating, die filling, granulation, milling, and more. EDEM provides key insight leading to optimized processes, better product quality, less physical prototyping and cost savings.
EDEM can be coupled with Altair CFD™ to simulate complex particle-fluid systems such as fluidized beds, solid-liquid mixing, spray coating, drying, and pneumatic conveying.
